    Peace and Happy Thanksgiving Rich

    My two sons who are healthy and happy and have given so much meaning to my life.

    The Illinois Supreme Court for defending my pension so that I won’t lose the only income I have and counted on after giving up my profession and am now too old to work.

  50. - Anonymous 88 - Tuesday, Nov 22, 16 @ 11:36 pm:

    My wife and my son — and my faith (nurtured by my late mom) which reminds me, in times of cultural or personal despair, that the God who created me works on a canvas that is billions of years old and his love for us all is stronger than any single moment in history, no matter how bleak things may look this month.

  53. - Southerngal - Wednesday, Nov 23, 16 @ 10:30 am:

    A friend shared with me yesterday a very touching read about how we should be grateful for problems and how it keeps our perspective in check with what’s really important. So I guess I would have to say I am thankful for Senate Bill 2814! :-)
